Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Great documentary starting on Discovery + 1 about the SAS actions in Mirbat in 72. I,ve seen this before & it has some fantastic reenactions along with interviews with the guys on the ground. Well worth a punt.

  2. I went on Exercise to the Oman in 2001 and did a Battlefield Tour of it with a half colonel who did the talking - an old fella who lived in Oman.

    The ground has changed a bit and the area around the BATT House is more built up than it was then, so the bloke said and the open ground they had to run across has now been built up, but you get the idea, and the fort was still there.

    Pretty awe inspiring stuff. The bloke doing the talking was very good - awful drive down from the movement box we were in for the Ex though.
